DP World Prince Rupert Phase II North Expansion Update 2017-08-03

DP World announced on July 31 that the marine portion of its Phase II North expansion project at the Port of Prince Rupert has been successfully completed and commissioned. This is the largest and most complicated part of the terminal development. The full capacity of 1.35 million TEUs will be released over the coming weeks, as related equipment commissioning and the rail yard infrastructure are completed.

The company also said that, in recent weeks, an unexpected surge in volume, in conjunction with construction activities, resulted in a backlog of import containers and higher-than-usual dwell times. It anticipates that the level of service will return to normal "very shortly."

The terminal is expected to achieve full capacity by the end of September.

Along with an upswing in capacity importers should see reduction in container dwell times (i.e. a return to levels experienced prior to the work) as the current expansion reaches completion.

Milgram welcomes the substantial amount of capacity being added by way of Prince Rupert’s expansion.
